I'm Felicity Teixeira.
I started Blue Petal Garden Design in 2007, after I qualified with a Certificate in Garden Design from Lifestyle College, (accredited by City & Guilds).
The gardens I design are simple, balanced and uncluttered. I take a modern approach, with a classic touch.
Important in garden design is to work with the architectural style of your home so that there is a natural fit, but this does not mean that we cannot give you all your heart desires. It is my job to find the way to marry your needs, your vision, and, the practicalities of each site.
A garden that speaks to your soul is a garden worth having. Nature is a natural healer; and when we surround ourselves with the things we love, we feel nurtured, safe and loved. We do this in our homes; we need to do this in our gardens too.
“Your home is an extension of your energy field. This is why practices like cleaning your home, rearranging furniture, organizing your closest and getting rid of objects that are cluttering your space can have a profound impact on your mind, body and spirit.” So it is with your garden too.
My Soul's yearning
Heart-centered, soul connected outdoor spaces that serve to connect people and nature at a Soul level; allowing nature to heal and nurture us, as we value and nurture her.
Soul to [SOIL] to Soul
After years of working with many different clients, and seeing the real joy that gardens bring to people, it has become even more important to me to be more conscious, mindful and heart-centred in my approach, in order to deliver to you a garden that is fully aligned with your soul's yearning and with nature.
To achieve this, it is important that you become engaged in the design process with me so that the end result – the beautiful garden, I know I can give you – is exactly that!
I also believe that when a client is fully engaged in the creative process, they are more committed to maintaining and caring for their garden, and take great pride and joy in seeing it flourish and grow and bloom.
Nature is a gift that we are blessed with, a gift that allows us to arrange it in a way that is pleasing to us, and all it asks in return is that we give it the same nurturing and love that we ourselves seek from it.
"Surround yourself with people and plants that are good for your Soul!"
